Larpers of Finland!
Do you want an all-paid, all-inclusive trip to Minsk, Belarus, to meet fellow larpers from around the world and network and play larps together with them?
We at Pohjoismaisen roolipelaamisen seura are happy to announce that as part of the EU funded network Larpers of the World, we will select 3-4 participants from Finland to take part in the workshop.
(Note that the APPLICATION DEADLINE IS ALREADY ON JUNE 30.)
The theme of the upcoming workshop is “Empowerment through entertainment”. Participants will run larps based on scripts that are not written by the game master to analyse their structure with a template for larp design for a future larp script database. They will also work with community building and inclusion in larp. The program outline will be released closer to the workshop.
The Larpers of the World network will cover your transport to and from Belarus, and to and from the airport in Finland. Food and sleeping arrangements in Belarus will also be taken care of. If you want to arrive before or stay longer (note that Belarus only issues 5 day visas via Minsk airport) – you will need to cover the cost on your own.
A good level of spoken English is needed since participants will play larps together. It is a plus (but not necessary) to have experience with:
– running larps;
– running larps from larpscripts;
– have designed larps and would like to document them;
-developing ways for working with community building to foster civic participation through larp.
Young people (under 28) and minorities, as well as larpers from outside the Helsinki area are encouraged to apply.
To apply, please write a short motivation letter (max. 1 page) in English and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org latest on June 30th. Please write briefly about your history as a larper and a larp organizer and let us know why you want to attend the workshop. Also include your age, the region in which you live and any other details you feel could be important for us to know when making the selection of participants.
